Luis Fonsi coming to Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater

He may have the song of the summer in Despacito. Now Luis Fonsi is hoping that magic stretches into fall.

The Puerto Rican heartthrob singer, whose Justin Bieber- and Daddy Yankee-assisted remix became a rare non-primarily-English song to top the Billboard Hot 100, is bringing his "Song + Dance" tour to Ruth Eckerd Hall on Sept. 20, the venue has announced. (He'll also be at Orlando's Hard Rock Live on Sept. 23.) Tickets to the Clearwater show start at $53.25. Click here.

Booking a Latin pop star is rare for Ruth Eckerd Hall, but anytime you can snag the man behind one of the hottest hits in the world, you take it. Fonsi had a big fan base before Desapacito, too, having won a Latin Grammy for Song of the Year for 2009's Aqui Estoy Yo.

No word on whether Bieber will join him in Clearwater, but we're guessing probably not.
